Speaking with The Sunday Times, the legendary actress revealed that while she certainly has her fair share of experience with luxury fashion, she is also not above some good budget fashion finds.

"I love Target," she confessed, before revealing her latest purchase from the store: "A leopard-skin bathing suit, which I photographed on Instagram," noting that it cost her $28.

Collins continued: "It got so many likes," adding: "Everybody thought it was Dolce [and Gabbana]."
